Im happy to see that this is a topic of intereset, as many industrial robots are used with linear axis and turn tables this is a key topic to drive ROS-I into our factories.

I thought I'd clarify here a bit: I believe *linear* axes are supported quite well. I've got 3 setups myself that use linear axes, it's not something that requires any really special configuration or planners (OMPL fi can cope with this just fine fi, and so can Descartes).

A turntable however is something I'm not sure about, but only because I've never configured such a system for use with ROS. Not necessarily because I don't think it's possible / supported right now.
